BioAlert LS15 is a unique integrated detection solution of the pathogen Legionella pneumophila in water environments. This bacteria is responsible for Legionnaires’ disease that affects over 15 000 people annually in North America, killing 10 to 15% of those infected. Increased frequency and severity of legionella outbreaks led to government regulations imposition on the subject. Businesses have experienced a significant increase in costs associated with frequent screening of the bacteria, as well as with contamination episodes.
BioAlert LS15 is a practical and cost-efficient solution to address the problem related to legionella contamination. It is an on-site device that performs daily readings of the level of bacterial concentration and communicates the results to a responsible person via private server infrastructure. BioAlert LS15 is easily maintained by changing a simple cartridge every month. The continuous sampling and daily analysis allow the optimization of chemical and biocide usage while significantly reducing the risk of legionella contamination.
